Sony Raises the Bar with New OLED TV, 4K Projectors, and ES Receivers
Audio Advice has been a proud dealer of Sony products for decades and there are many reasons we continue to back them as one of our premier brands. In our minds, there is no question that Sony knows how to make the best picture.
They are the only video brand that has their hand in every step of the filmmaking process, from the camera the film is shot on, to the video production studio, to the professional projectors, and finally the products in your home. The other reason we are drawn to Sony is that of their outstanding reliability and customer support. They are simply one of the best in the business!
If you have been thinking about updating your TV or home theater video to 4K, right now is a great time to do so. At Audio Advice, we feel the video processor ultimately determines how good the picture is. We suspect a lot of you reading this may still be using a Pioneer brand plasma TV and have been hanging onto it due to the incredible blacks and color spectrum the best plasma TVs from Pioneer Elite offered. We agree those sets made an awesome picture!
Sony’s First OLED
The new Sony OLED televisions deliver the super deep blacks and pure colors found in the best plasmas. Sony has taken the best OLED panels on the market and coupled them with their incredible top-of-the-line video processor to create a picture that is far superior to the plasma you love. You’ll get even deeper blacks and rich colors with the amazing resolution 4K and HDR offers.
As an added bonus, Sony OLEDs consume far less energy than plasmas and will not heat up a room the way a plasma does. Do to a much slimmer bezel than in older models, you will likely be able to jump up in size from a 55” plasma or older LCD to a 60” OLED (or from a 60” to a 65”). We invite you to come into our stores in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina to check out these amazing new OLED sets from Sony!
In the world of front projection home theater, a lot of big changes have happened recently. The price of entry for a simply amazing front projector has dropped to under $2,000 with the VPL-HW45ES! Sony’s new entry-level front projector produces an image that will blow away a $15,000 projector from 10 years ago. Right away, you’ll notice more light output, fewer motion artifacts, and much more detail.
If you’re looking to step up to a true 4K projector, they can now be had for under $8,000 with the Sony VPL-VW365ES. This thing is blowing away our customers with its awesome picture and interestingly enough, many customers have commented on how good it makes non-4K content look. The 365 uses Sony’s great video upscaling technology to take your streaming or paid content and upgrade it to 4K. The results are just spectacular! There has never been a better time to upgrade or discover the fun a dedicated home theater offers.
ES Home Theater Receivers
We also recently tested Sony’s brand new ES home theater receiver lineup. The STR-ZA1100ES offers you a great way to get into the fun of Dolby Atmos object-based surround, and comes with a 5-year warranty! Priced at under $1,000, it is an amazing value for a great all-in-one home theater control center with tons of features.
